Petrol prices are at new record highs after rising for a second-straight week this week.

Petrojam, the State-owned oil refinery which announces prices each Wednesday, said it will hike the cost of both 87 and 90 gasoline by $2.43. That increase takes them to $167.42 and $172.87, respectively — the highest ex-refinery figure for both grades of the fuel.

Automotive diesel oil and ultra-low sulphur diesel will both increase, the latter going up by $2.23 while the former is to jump by $1.93.

Kerosene oil will cost consumers $1.27 more per litre.

Propane goes up by $1.50 while butane increases by $2.56.
